Varietal: Cortese

The Cortese white wine grape varietal has been cultivated for several hundred years in its native home of Piedmont, Italy. In particular, the southern part of this beautiful and mountainous region sees a large amount of Cortese grape production, as the grape grows most successfully in the warmer and drier parts of Piedmont, where the cold weather cannot adversely effect this delicate varietal by concentrating the natural acids within the fruit. Cortese grapes are renowned for their moderate acidity, and the fact that they produce delicate white wines of a medium body which are easy to drink, and beautifully aromatic. Most typically, they carry fresh and invigorating flavours of green fruits such as lime and greengage, meaning the wines made from Cortese are very crisp, and famously perfect for matching with seafood.

Region: Piedmont

Situated in the north-western part of Italy, the region of Piedmont is known worldwide and is highly respected for the quality of the wines produced there. Many of the most successful sub-regions in Piedmont produce many of the world's finest red wines, such as those made from the excellent Nebbiolo grape varietal in areas such as Barolo and Barbaresco. However, the historic wineries which typify this region use a relatively wide variety of grapes, including Dolcetto and Barbera for their red wines, which are typically aged and have a delightful velvety character. Piedmont isn't all about beautifully complex red wines, though, as it is also famed for high quality, elegant sparkling wines, notably the Asti wines made with the white Moscato grape. The region benefits from a range of terroirs which are often well expressed in the sparkling wines, and a wonderfully consistent climate ideal for vineyard cultivation.

Country: Italy

It isn't difficult to understand why Italy is famed not just for the quality of its wines, but also for the vast variety and range of characteristics found in the wines there. The terrain of the country varies wildly, from the lush rolling green hills and valley of Tuscany, to the sun drenched rocky coasts of Sicily, the mountainous and alpine regions of the north, and the marshy lowlands of the east. Italy really does have a little bit of everything. Combine this huge range of landscapes with an almost perfect climate for grape cultivation, and you have a country seemingly designed for viticultural excellence. The results speak for themselves, and it is clear to see that wine has become an inseparable part of Italian culture as a result of its abundance and brilliance. Each village, city and region has a local wine perfectly matched with the cuisine of the area, and not an evening passes without the vast majority of Italian families raising a glass of locally sourced wine with pride and pleasure.
